craft hoarders...

Have you ever watched the show "Hoarders - Buried Alive"?
My heart goes out to those people who struggle with that disorder.
Like I said yesterday, I am a messy gal, I really am... but not to that extent.
As I watch the show, I just want to go through my T.V. and help them out!

So why the talk of such a subject as hoarding?
Well, because I have to let you in on a little secret of mine.

I hoard my handcrafted clay goodies.
I do!
And I'm really unsure why?
Maybe because so much time goes in between my "clay time"
like weeks...sometimes months...
But because I posted a Q & A post yesterday,
the only brave soul to ask me a question one of you mentioned my baked pins. 
So it is not without my tissues *sniff*
that I have listed my baked pins.  

And I hope you love them as much as I.

These little darlings would make the perfect Mothers Day gift!
ESPECIALLY with one of these darling pincushions
that my friend Des makes.

This is the one I have, and I looooooove it!!

I also have this pincushion made by my friend Kirsten 
she made it just to display my baked pins on.
Isn't it sweet?

So lets be honest...
what do YOU hoard?

Oh...I hoard fabric...I mean really, I could put a small quilt shop to shame I'm sure. I don't have any full bolts...just lots and lots of yardage. Wish I could post a picture! I totally get it when you were talking about your pins...there is some fabric that I buy with something in mind...then I have the hardest time cutting it!

*gasp* I need those sugary pins! I have a pretty pincushion and a small collection of pretty (mostly yours) pins and I really don't even sew. ;)

lol! I've known a few fabric hoarders...I know I'd be a fabric hoarder if I was a seamstress! You can post a picture on my Facebook wall? Wouldn't that be fun? Fabric hoarders, button hoarders, bead hoarders, goes on and on...

My mother in law is a fabric hoarder and so am I. I am lucky my husband grew up around so much fabric because now he doesn't seem to mind mine as much.

Unfortunately, I also hoard any kind of craft stuff. I always buy it with a project in mind but never (or hardly ever) do I get around to putting it all together.
